This and That

I really miss this. Here I am on a ride through the mountains with Mozart.

I don't think I've ridden in one year...maybe longer. I hope I can still do it! That is...keep up with Mozart. Then again...he hasn't been riding either. He's been composing.

Do you know he just reached his 500th composition? That was a goal of his. He said, "When I reach 500, we'll go out to dinner and celebrate." So last night we went out for Italian food.

"Does this mean you will have a little more free time now?" I asked.

"Not until I hit 1000."

Today is Sunday, and Mozart is working in another studio towards the beach, about an hour away. My youngest son is working today at the market, and my oldest son is somewhere...but not here. So I have the afternoon to do as I please. But I wanted to be productive so I made a list. I think I accomplished everything except "put up the Christmas lights".

Let's see...

I bought a baby gift and visited the neighbors who have a new grand-daughter.
Filed papers on my desk.
Read three chapters in the book of Hebrews. (I'm learning quite a bit...and may post about it later.)
Wrote my "Compassion" child in Mexico.
Made meatloaf.
Did 1.5 loads of laundry.
Prayed for people.
Put my bicycle in the back of Mozart's truck and took it to a new neighborhood. It's nice to have a change of scenery. I watched the sun shine sideways illuminating yellow and gold trees. Then the sun disappeared and I wrestled my bike back in the truck.

I stopped by the market on the way home to get some laundry soap and say hello to my young son, who was busy bagging groceries.

After cleaning up the kitchen and folding the last pair of jeans, I decided to enjoy my book. And just as I opened it, I realized I had forgotten the last item on the list.

"Post on your blog"

Have a good week!

What a fun and productive day! And that must be so neat, composing music. Love music. We're doing a children/youth play at church (written by a member, edited, produced, and directed by me) about the true story of how Silent Night came to be and the amazing happening with regards to WWI called the Christmas Truce of 1914. Keeping busy in these parts!

You accomplished so much more than I did! Congrats to Mozart on his 500 compositions.

Such a creative husband you are so much more productive than I will have to share your time management secrets....

Sounds like a very good day - I'm sorry you haven't had time to get out on the cycles - motorized ones, at least. I love days by myself - but I need to make a list and check it twice and get busy on it! I can't get into the shopping and/or decorating mode! The concert rehearsals are intense, and I'm loving the music.

I'm glad you finished your list!
